Best Movies and TV Shows Coming to Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, and Amazon Prime in May 2020

on April 29, 2020, 2:00pm

Amazon, Disney Plus, Hulu, and Netflix: Odds are you probably have one or two of these streaming networks, if not all of them, especially nowadays where quarantine demands an endless stream of content. What’s difficult is deciding what to watch at any given moment, namely because they’re all pumping out so much new content every goddamn day.

Already, we’ve shown you everything coming to Amazon, Disney Plus, Hulu, and Netflix in May 2020. Below, we’ve collated the best of the best in each list, from can’t-miss shows (both new and old) to must-see movies (both new and old). It’s an easy-to-read guide that you can consult throughout the month, all so you can avoid those monotonous searches.

On the TV front, there’s the debut of Space Force and The Eddy on Netflix, the return of Homecoming on Amazon Prime, and Hulu’s even got a new cartoon from the creators of Rick and Morty (see: Solar Opposites). For film, there’s the new Kumail Nanjiani/Issa Rae comedy The Lovebirds at Netflix and The Rise of the Skywalker lands on Disney Plus.

That’s all without mentioning Uncut Gems finally landing on Netflix, or Disney Plus’ new docuseries on The Mandalorian, or that curious period dramedy The Great with Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult that’s premiering on Hulu. Rest assured, there’s a lot to behold, and all you have to do is make sure you’re aware of it.

So, take a look and plan accordingly.
